A Philosophy of Stewardship

We believe that extravagant generosity is the Biblical norm, not the exception.  We challenge donors to give liberally to kingdom causes.  We urge prayerful giving to God's work, not for tax benefits, nor for budget needs.  We scrutinize our methodologies against not what works, but against God-honoring principles.

64Fundraising efforts at the Tall Oaks Classical School exist to raise funds not covered by tuition received from parents, but needed to operate the school. Fundraising efforts also exist for purposes of soliciting donations of goods and services, cultivation of a network of committed parents and volunteers, and educating the community about the school.

In keeping with the standard set forth in Proverbs 11:1, which says, "The LORD abhors dishonest scales, but accurate weights are His delight," Tall Oaks Classical School will conduct itself with integrity, always presenting the school truthfully in its verbal and written appeals.

Tall Oaks Classical School will utilize all funds entrusted to it solely for the benefit of the school and its students. We will endeavor to wisely spend the funds raised, always mindful of the love and sacrifice with which those funds have been made available to us.

Faithful Stewardship Sustains Godly Scholarship

We are so excited about how the school is advancing and welcome you to visit each of our links to discover more about the school and how you may become involved.

Like most private schools, the tuition received from parents at Tall Oaks Classical School does not cover all of the school’s expenses, and we all know it takes money to continue to offer our students every advantage while receiving their education. To that end, we seek to raise the extra funds we need through our Annual Gift Campaign and special events.

In addition to our Annual Gift Campaign, through which donations may be made throughout the year, and our special events, Tall Oaks Classical School is happy to receive gifts toward scholarships and tuition assistance, and toward the purchase of equipment and teaching tools needed in the classroom. Your donations may be designated for any item you choose, and unrestricted donations are always a blessing to the school.

Check and credit card donations may be made electronically through PayPal, which is linked to this site. Simply click on the Donate Now link. Checks may also be mailed to Tall Oaks Classical School at 1390 Red Lion Road, Bear, DE 19701.

It is a wonderful privilege and honor to be trusted as stewards of the gifts you give, and we greatly appreciate the generosity of the Tall Oaks Classical School family and our friends. As a 501 (c) 3 organization, donations are tax deductible.
